SLCgreen note: We received this email from Wasatch Community Gardens, and were so excited that we had to share it with you! Mark your calendars for the 2014 Plant Sale on Saturday, May 10!

Dear Friends,

It’s starting to feel like spring, and that means Wasatch Community Gardens’ Plant Sale is just around the corner! Mark your calendar for Saturday, May 10 and don’t miss this opportunity to buy plants for your whole yard while also supporting your favorite community gardening organization.

We will have a selection of more than sixty beautiful, organic varieties of tomatoes, so you don’t need to worry about us running out.

And tomatoes are just the beginning.We will also have an outstanding variety of perennials, including unique edibles, sun and shade loving varieties, Utah natives, and ornamental grasses.

We will have our famous organic heirloom veggie seedlings and annual flowers for companion planting. And, there will be a huge selection of organic herbs including basil, rosemary, oregano, and more. Last but not least, we will be selling bags of compost.

It’s easy to get an invite to our Friday night pre-sale. Just sign up to volunteer, or consider making a gift of $250 or more to Wasatch Community Gardens in support of our gardening and education programs. This is a great way to ensure that you get the first pick of all of the tomatoes, perennials, and other garden goodies available.

We also have a fantastic line-up of educational workshops and Food Talks in the coming month. And, as always, we have plots available in many of our community gardens.

Already looking forward to my first homegrown, heirloom tomato,

Ashley Patterson
Executive Director
